Shakespeare & The Jacobeans on Screen
Thursday, January 15, 2015
Event hosted by: SVA Theatre
Event hosted by: The Shakespeare Society
Event hosted by: Red Bull Theater
A collaboration between SVA Theatre,Â The Shakespeare Society, and Red Bull Theater.
The evening will focus on the relationship between Shakespeare and his darker, bloodier-minded Jacobean successors, in particular the great poet and playwright John Ford. Using film clips from Franco Zeffirelli’s Romeo and Juliet, Orson Welles’s Othello and a rarely seen BBC adaptation of ‘Tis Pity She’s a Whore, directed by Roland JoffÃ©, we will reveal how Ford adapted and reworked Shakespeare’s themes of violence, jealousy and desire in his own sinister, strangely hypnotic key.
